We were speaking about bento making and decorations with Bear. And, when looking in my cupboards he found this black rice, that I cherish, and came up with this idea of solar eclipse. One picture before the eclipse and one during it, using the two rices. It took me quite a while but I believe I managed to feature the image he had in mind.
On the cooking side, the only new item is the glazed seitan with Brussels sprouts. The spinach is the left-overs of the filling of the spinach pancake we made on Saturday evening, the ratatouille is the left-overs from Sunday meal.
The broccoli was cooked in water flavoured with ginger, chilli pepper powder, garlic, salt and pepper. The carrots are raw and cut with tiny cake cutters, the stalks of the flowers are made out of parsley stalk.
Thinking about Maki’s challenge and advised proportions : Bear told me that one half of the bento full with rice is far too much…Have to review my proportions!
